If you have never done the Waterfalls walk then you are in for a very special treat. In case you have not noticed, it rains in Wales, A LOT! The route shows off some spectacular waterfalls, and yes you do actually get to walk behind one!
This is probably one of the best routes in the world - I'm not just saying that!
January is perfect, its one of those routes where the more rain the better.
Waterproofs and good trail shoes essential
Distance: 8K/5 miles ish
Lumpiness: 350M - steep climb at the start
Date: 21st April
Llanthony Priory is the start of this lovely route. A steep climb to Hatterall Ridge - described by Iolo as one of the most beautiful places in Wales. Some may argue! The ridge is the boundary between England and Wales, - some may say its the most beautiful in England!
Either way, its a delightful run with one hand in Wales and the other in England, along the famous Offas Dyke.
After an enjoyable run you may wish to have a refreshing pint in the historic grounds of the Priory

Pace: The events are fun, and set at a relaxing pace. There will be at least two run leaders, so if you want to jog and amble, while others want to sprint off we can cater for both. That said, it is nice to have the social side of it, We may stick together simply because it's enjoyable. We will do whatever is needed to make your time as pleasant as possible.
What you get: Well planned routes that show the very best of South Wales, gained from many many years of experience in these hills.
Two leaders with extensive experience of leading running groups in the mountains (sad to say, I've been doing this for over 40 years!).
A chance to learn and ask questions so you can go in the mountains on your own. We want to show off these routes, enabling you to come back again and again. We will happily share how to do this safely and help improve your navigation - just ask if you are interested. This is why we do this, part of our Not for Profit drive.
Cuppa and light snacks at the end, to give time to share the experience.
